Scandinavian Christmas Style

When it comes to decking the halls, Scandinavia is a regular inspiration. So what’s the secret to achieving a classic Scandi festive look? We’re delighted to invite an expert opinion from Scandinavian design blog Norse White to HIBS100 today. From London-based interior design company Ardesia Design, these guys know a thing or two when it comes to Scandinavian style.

What is Scandinavian style?

Scandinavian design appeared in the 1950s in the Scandinavian countries Denmark, Norway, Sweden and Finland. It is a design movement characterized by simplicity, minimalism and functionality. This style offers a calm and peaceful interior look and this makes us think it is perfect for Christmas. Scandinavian style usually involves a mix of creamy, white, silver, gold and red colours, which offers a very simple and elegant approach to festive decorating.

Decorating the tree

The Christmas tree is a focal point of the house during Christmas and it needs to be perfect. Decorate your Christmas tree with simple wooden or hand made toys, using mainly white, silver and red colours. Play with Christmas tree skirting, by choosing a sheepskin, wooden basket or a pallet box. Try to be creative, but remember to keep it simple.

Dressing the table

Scandinavian style is always defined by nature and use of greenery, candle light and handmade crafts. Decorate your table with springs of green, snipping branch tips from your Christmas tree or using rosemary branches. Combine branches with candles and try to sprinkle a bit of silver or gold decorative ornaments on the table. Dinner dishes, table linen and table decorations should be a mix of white and red colours.

House Decorations

Try to use more wood, whites and silver, paying attention to purity and cleanness of the decor. Play with Christmas tree branches, making them into a feature by placing into a big vase or by creating a door wreath. Bring more light into the house by using loads of candles. The main idea of Scandinavian design is to show beauty and function of everyday objects, so be natural, keep it within the colour scheme and you will get a beautiful Scandinavian Christmas Home.

So You Know...

As you've likely heard and seen, there's an increasing focus on the authenticity of follower growth and engagement on social platforms across the Influencer Marketing community. The platforms themselves have taken measures to deter inauthentic activity and brands now more closely scrutinise the audiences of the influencers with whom they are partnering.

The Flea Network has implemented a system that will detect abnormal spikes in following and engagement, and flag these properties. Of course, such spikes can often be attributed to viral posts or high-profile brands that bring greater exposure to some content.

If one of your social accounts is flagged by our system without an obvious reason, we may reach out to you for assistance in understanding it. If we find any influencer has artificially inflated their audience size or engagement using paid acquisition or automated, third-party tools, we will remove them permanently from our influencer community.

Feel free to reach out to us at bloggers@fleaenterprises.com with any questions or comments.

Thank you!
